Just Keepin' Austin Weird ::: Drunk Cowboys Arrested for Riding Horse and Donkey Down 6th Street

If you actually need more than the title... lol...

Austin, TX - Two men charged with driving while intoxicated had their charges reduced to public intoxication after police arrested them for riding a horse and donkey down 6th Street.

Jose Rios, 33, and Samuel Olivo Jr., 48, were caught riding a horse and donkey in the 300 block of E. 6th Street while intoxicated. The two were coaxing people on the street to come, take pictures and pet their horse and donkey. Officers say the two were impeding traffic and could have caused an accident.

Officers conducted a field sobriety test on the two and then charged with DWI. According to Texas Penal Code, Chapter 49 (Driving While Intoxicated), the definition of a motor vehicle is given in Chapter 32.34 (a)(2) of the Texas Penal Code. The definition of a motor vehilce given in Ch. 32.34 (a)(2) is: a device in, on, or by which a person or property is or may be transported or drawn on a highway, except a device used exclusively on stationary rails or tracks.

DWI charges were dropped for both Rios and Olvio, but Rios was charged with public intoxication.

As for the animals, officers had to transfer to the horse and donkey to the Town Lake Animal Center until they could get better accomodations at Elgin animal hospital.

Video too! lol!
